Interview with Weinstock's Author Annette Kassis "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on October 9, 2012

Annette Kassis is the author of Weinstock's: Sacramento's Finest Department Store, a book about the chain that started in Sacramento and lasted over a century until it was absorbed by Federated. We did the interview at Arden Fair Mall to highlight the fact that what is now Macy's, owned by Federated, was once Weinstock's, which had several stores in California.

In this first of three brief videos Annette talks about her interests as an historian. She enjoys writing about California, particularly regarding media such as McClatchy Broadcasting, in which the Sacramento Bee was the first newspaper on the west coast to also own a radio station. Her interest in writing about California history led to an opportunity to write about Weinstock's through a national publisher that concentrates on regional markets.
